Hence why I thought the effort to discern whether or not we're living in a universal simulation as a waste of money, nay a bad idea.
If the eggheads figure out we're in the Matrix, then what's stopping people from saying "**** it, nothings 'real', let's **** shit up?"
Nothing. Give me the ****ing blue pill every goddamn time.
Why wouldn't it be "Real"? "Real" is just how we perceive our reality. From the perception of the person, there would be no discernable difference. One wouldn't feel more "Real" than the other. Unless you could experience both, you couldn't have an opinion could you? The reality you were currently experiencing would always seem like the "Real" one. So your choice on red or blue pill would be irrelevant in saying which one was "Real"...
